Its location is absolutely the only thing in this restaurant's favour. The staff beckoning us in were certainly warm and friendly but as soon as we were seated their demeanour changed. I have never experienced such rude "service" in any restaurant before. The food itself...More

No words to write except that this was the worst meal I have ever had in my whole life. Inedible food and terribly overpriced!

The sales pitch with the pelican was the only strong part of this experience (I should have known better). On entering the restaurant we waited nearly an hour for food that was placed in front of another customer for fifteen minutes. Eventually the part-eaten and...More
